There are pockets of teachers who do see how important this is. I can understand the pressure of teaching to the test though. Senior management in schools need to take responsibility to make this change. Teachers don't understand the social networking tool so difficult to teach....that's what I'm here/there for :)

Inside Arcology, the City of the Future (Infographic)

Inside Arcology, the City of the Future (Infographic) | Communication design | Scoop.it

For over a century, writers and architects have imagined the cities of the future.

 In the late 1960s, architect Paolo Soleri envisioned “arcology” - a word that combines “architecture” and “ecology," with a goal of building structures to house large populations in self-contained environments with a self-sustaining economy and agriculture. “In the three-dimensional city, man defines a human ecology. In it he is a country dweller and metropolitan man in one. By it the inner and the outer are at ‘skin’ distance. He has made the city in his own image. Arcology: the city in the image of man.” (Paolo Soleri)

luiy's curator insight, July 8, 2013 7:42 AM
For over a century, writers and architects have imagined the cities of the future as giant structures that contain entire metropolises. To some, these buildings present the best means for cities to exist in harmony with nature, while others forsee grotesque monstrosities destructive to the human spirit. In the mid-20th century, engineer and futurist R. Buckminster Fuller imagined city-enclosing plastic domes and enormous housing projects resembling nuclear cooling towers. These ideas are impractical but they explore the limits of conventional architectural thinking.  Science fiction writers and artists often imagine future architecture that oppresses the human spirit. Megastructures such as the pyramid-like Tyrell Buildings of “Blade Runner” dominate a decrepit skyline. The decaying old city is simply covered with layers of newer, larger buildings in a process of “retrofitting.” Beginning in the late 1960s, architect Paolo Soleri envisioned a more humane approach. The word “arcology” is a combination of “architecture” and “ecology.” The goal is to build megastructures that would house a population of a million or more people, but in a self-contained environment with its own economy and agriculture. “In the three-dimensional city, man defines a human ecology. In it he is a country dweller and metropolitan man in one. By it the inner and the outer are at ‘skin’ distance. He has made the city in his own image. Arcology: the city in the image of man.” (Paolo Soleri) In 1996, a group of 75 Japanese corporations commissioned Soleri to design the one-kilometer-tall Hyper Bulding, a vertical city for 100,000 people. Existing in harmony with nature, the Hyper Building was designed to recycle waste, produce food in greenhouses, and use the sun’s light and heat for power and climate control.  The structure was designed for passive heating and cooling without the need for machinery. An economic recession put the brakes on the project and it was never built. Soleri’s arcology concept is being put to the test in the Arcosanti experimental community being built in Arizona. Construction began in 1970. When complete the town will house 5,000 people. Buildings are composed of locally produced concrete and are designed to capture sunlight and heat. To be built in the desert near Abu Dhabi, Masdar is a 2.3-square-mile (6 sq km) planned city of 40,000 residents. Buildings are designed to reduce reliance on artificial lighting and air conditioning, and the city will run entirely on solar power and renewable energy. Begun in 2006, the project is planned for completion around 2020-2025.

Amazing and beautiful analysis!! Believe it or not, the science fiction also has something to teach us about the city of tomorrow.

Carlos H's curator insight, November 4, 2013 4:29 PM

Music curation is in the future of music and allows producers and artist the oppotunity of touching their fan base. Wtih music curation you as an artist  allow your fans to tell you what they want to hear, this allows the industry to filter out  the one hit wonder who linger s around and makes way for the true talents to do what they love.

Thank you for your insights! Donna, whether we are talking about a library or any other business. I think that it all depends on who my customers are. Who are they, what is important to them, and how can I add value. How can we as a business adapt, evolve, and respond to what our customer need from us. The art of story telling helps us to communicate in a way that we not only reach the minds of our audience...we also connect emotionally.

A Swing That Sits At The 'End' Of The World | Communication design | Scoop.it

For extreme-fun seekers, who think swings will never make the list, the 'Swing at the End of the World' might just make you change your mind. 

At the edge of Ecuador, on a path up to Bellavista, sits a seismic monitoring station called 'La Casa del Árbol'—The Treehouse. Right next to its simple structure sits an equally simple-looking swing that that hangs precariously at the edge of the canyon. It is open for use to 'thrill-seekers' at their own risk. 

With a slight push, the person sitting on the swing would be 'thrown' right over the edge, with a full birds-eye view of what lies below...

China's Sustainable Cave Hotel Under Construction

China's Sustainable Cave Hotel Under Construction | Communication design | Scoop.it

Construction has started on a cave hotel resort by Atkins that will nestle into the rockface of an abandoned water-filled quarry near Shanghai, China.

Once complete, the hotel will offer around 400 rooms, as well as conference facilities, a banquet hall, restaurants, a swimming pool and a water-sports centre.

The building will use geothermal technologies to generate its own electricity and lighting, while greenery will blanket a roof that extends just two storeys above the edge of the quarry.

 

Sustainability is integral to Atkins' design of this unique resort, built into an abandoned, water-filled quarry.

A new hotel gonna be built near Shanghai, China which will call with a name ' Cave hotel'. This new hotel will have a shape like a waterfall in the middle of two buildings of hotel. A great ideal hotel will come up in the future make the guest really interested included me, it uses geothermal technologies to generate its own electricity. It is really a great hotel but what i consider is this hotel will be built in among the environment and it will be affect directly to the environment which many protecter want to protect the environment. Waster will be a problem with this hotel because there is no water factory near there. The idea of this hotel is great but it will create many problems to some objecter like green environment. I don't think this hotel can build and success in the future.
